A day of total serendipity! We drove the Virginia Lake loop into the Sierras and found the beginnings of the wild flower blooming. Virginia Lakes Resort was a surprise and a delight for lunch. What a gem of a place on Little Virginia Lake. The snow on the mountains goes right down to the 45 degree water. The trout fishermen use specialized rafts with their waders to fish these lakes.
The Lundy Canyon loop was beautiful, then we decided to follow a hint in a photo guide book. We drove up Log Cabin Road, a dirt road, steep, rutted, barely marked, and definitely adventurous! I rode on faith and my belief in Ken as a good driver! We climbed up the mountain until we came to the very top and could look out over Mono Lake!
Ken went back to Mono Lake for sunset over the tufa formations.
